I’ll be honest. Non-flavored whites freak me out. The dry smell of this one especially! I got this as a gift. I’m feeling a bit guilty for not getting around to this sooner. The hardest part of brewing the small amount I did, about 150ml, is that I only added as much as I guess-timated would be the best.
The smell on this one is very, well, dry. I find it has a lot of hay like notes. The liquor itself is very light and surprisingly has a very strong smell.
But oh my gosh. I’m so glad I tried this one! I think the water should have been heated just a bit higher b/c this is already cool and it’s only been 2min. But it is much sweeter than I thought it would be! The sweetness is actually in the forefront of this cuppa.
I actually really enjoy this tea! Coming from someone who avoids this type of style generally I am floored. This is an extra silky, extra sweet liquor with a small amount of dry/hay flavor that right now I’m willing to overlook.

It sounds nice! I agree that plain white tea is also difficult for me to brew properly and appreciate. :)

It is almost sacrilegious for me to be saying this, but something tells me that this very special honey I’ve been hoarding would be very nice in this. (Savannah Bee Company)
